When I made it last weekend, I took some over to my friends to share.....by the time I drove the 5 minutes back to my house, this picture was posted on Facebook with a thank you. It was that good.
In a large saucepan over a medium-high heat, combine the onions, celery, and carrots as well as the cooking fat. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Cover the saucepan and cook for about one hour, allowing the stew to simmer. Stir a few times during the cooking process.
Remove the lid and cook uncovered for about 45 minutes.
I boiled white potato's separately and add them when served for my husband. This keeps the starchy potato stuff out of the soup and keeps it Paleo. This photo has them in it along with some delicious garlic bread from Kiedrowskis Bakery.
